Darikwa told Latics TV after the game: “It’s a great moment for myself to finally get on the scoresheet.
“It’s been a while since I’ve scored a goal, but the main thing is that it was an important goal for the team.
“It gave us the lead in the game – and to do it in front of the away fans – it was a special moment.
“Football is everything with supporters in stadiums, and to score my first goal for the football club with the armband on in front of the away end, I’m happy about it.”
